Grants for Arts Organizations
Through our grant programs, we invest in arts organizations and the impact they have in our community. Since our establishment in 1967, we have awarded more than $33 million in grants to more than 200 emerging and established nonprofit arts organizations, large and small, throughout Dallas County. We also recruit, train and staff more than 70 volunteers in the community and nationally in researching, evaluating and awarding our grants.
Grantmaking is a critical component of our mission to support artistic excellence and impact in the arts. Through our grant programs we hope to not only strengthen the effectiveness and impact of arts organizations, but to also encourage innovation and risk-taking.
